NZEI Teachers Stride Day Wednesday 14 November
The Kirkwood Intermediate School Board of Trustees has been advised that the Principal and classroom teachers who are members of NZEI at our school will be taking strike action on Wednesday 14 November.
The Board has carefully considered the availability of teaching staff, and unfortunately decided that we can not provide the normal teaching services during the strike. It is important that you make alternative arrangements for the care of your child/children on the day of the strike.
If it is impossible for you to make alternative arrangements we may be able to supervise a small number of students. Please let the school office know if your child/children will need this.
We know that this is inconvenient for parents and students alike, but please be assured that student safety is our main concern.
If the strike does not go ahead then school will operate as usual.
Thank you for your understanding. Please contact Phil Tappenden if you have any queries relating to this decision.
